Packed with need-to-know information, this handbook should be every painter's companion in the studio. With students and painters with limited time in mind, chapters focus on essentials: colours required for a basic palette; preparing a support; which are the most vibrant and permanent pigments etc., while describing how materials and techniques have developed over the centuries and how to apply them for the best results. The emphasis on practical advice will appeal to artists who like to explore and experiment, are economically minded, or simply find satisfaction in doing it all themselves. The author includes recipes for making glazes, acrylic ground, gesso and pastel sticks; information on photographing and archiving work yourself; a guide to setting up a studio; and the results of the author's own extensive testing of materials from paints to papers. The Painter's Studio Handbook is an ideal quick reference work for artists working in all media wanting to get started with a minimum of fuss with their painting or drawing.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Simon provides invaluable practical advice on essential subjects ... This is a complete resource that will appeal to serious artists working in all media, and who enjoy exploring, experimenting and who aim to take their work to the next level. * The Artist *
Just the sort of info that you should have been taught at art school if the tutors hadn't been so preoccupied with abstract expressions and pickled sharks ... An incredibly useful and inspiring companion for any studio * Artists & Illustrators *
